Reuters exclusively reports Taliban launch charm offensive with Afghan banks

Reuters reported exclusively that the new, Taliban-appointed head of Afghanistan’s central bank has sought to reassure banks that the group wants a fully-functioning financial system, but has so far provided little detail on how it will supply funds to sustain it. The acting central bank governor, Haji Mohammad Idris, met members of the Afghanistan Banks Association and other bankers this week and told them that the Taliban viewed the banking sector as imperative, Reuters sources said. The militant group, which now controls the country, was working to find solutions for liquidity and rising inflation, Reuters sources quoted Idris as saying.
